|Jenolan||:||Just sold my truck, apart from our farm Kelpie Oscar, that is all of the farm gone.|
|shenley||:||And best wishes to you and all our RBR friends. Peter|
|shenley||:||Thanks for the info, Larry. I hope 2020 is good for you and Helen and that life in your new location is settling down. I've just rung Norm and got the phone number, direct to his room, and his new email address. He sounded just like the "old Norm". He said he has difficulty walking these days but he can still read with the aid of a magnifying glass. He said his nursing home is excellent and he is happy where he is.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm has a new email address, anyone that needs it should contact me...|
|Jenolan||:||Just hit 40°C here ... Endolin Weather|
|Jenolan||:||To save money web site hosting has been reduced and AWS file hosting of the compendium removed|
|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
Follow the log train to Claredale Lumber, couple to the empty log jinkers. Return to Kalandra with the empty jinkers at Kalandra pick up more empty jinkers. Head for Tarwong Junction Logging, uncouple 10 wagons. Proceed to Upper Tarwong Logging, Uncouple the empties and make up a train with the loaded jinkers. Back to Tarwong Junction Logging and pick up more loading . Then it's home to Kalandra and after leavingthe loading in a siding Put the locos over the pit and that is it for the day.
Drive the train to Tulley Logging and load the wagons. Then off to Claredale Lumber and unload the logs. Uncouple from the log jinkers and couple to the flat wagons in the yard. A double unit will arive to return the log jinkers to Kalandra Load the flats with lumber and return to Ashburn.
Sorry to call you back on but the relief crew were sloshed and were refused duty So Control wants you to take the train to McIntyre Market.
Unload and after checking that all wagons are empty, return to Ashburn.
Upon arrival make up a train to load timber tomorrow.
Thank you for your co-operation.
You, of course, will be well compensated for the extra shift.
Reverse your Locos and couple to your train at Ashburn. Drive to Buckland Valley and load the flat wagons with potatoes When the wagons are correctly loaded, run around your train. Change locos and leave Buckland Valley. Then it is a straight run home to Ashburn and rest.
Today you are running a tourist trip to Gabledon Refinery and Cudgee Oil. Assemble your train in Altona yard. Pick up the tourists on No. 2 platform. Then onto Gabledon Refinery and Cudgee Oil and back to Altona You will not be stopping for passengers at any stations along the way.
The factory at Jindowee is almost out of diesel, so your job today is to pick up the loaded diesel wagons at Ashburn and deliver them to Jindowee.
Once you are there you can pick up a spare loco and bring the wagons loaded with general goods back to Ashburn.
Sorry about the weather
All signals and junctions will be set for you.
Have a good day.
